    Jacking Points Assistance

    Hi, Zobelbraun is quite a rare colour. Your 520i will be only the 4th I know about world wide. I really like Zobelbraun Ivo refurbished a US M5 into a Euro M5 in Zobelbraun: This has been my inspiration to change my 1985 Zobelbraun 525e to green glass, green/green windscreen, shadow line trim M5 front lip spoiler, yellow fogs, yellow headlight, map light rear view mirror, trunk mounted first aid kit... Did I mention that I liked Zobelbraun There are a few E28 specialists around who know their way around the bodywork if you need to go down this route. If you are having a go yourself have a look at"https://www.tonybmw.co.uk/, his fabrication work and attention to detail is quite inspiring and will help you to understand what you are getting into before you get to far into it, if that makes sense. Some E28 M5 body work detailed here: http://retrorides.proboards.com/thread/119596/1987-bmw-e28-m5-blue There are quite a few threads detailing E28 bodywork both on the E28 thread as well as the projects thread. Welcome to a great Forum. Regards, Mick

    E28 Tow bar set up - Free!

    I will most likely be back over to Glasgow in the New Year, so can pick up if you are willing to hold onto this until then. What is the all-up weight of this as I can bring an extra checked bag and spread the weight around two checked bags? Thank you. Regards, Mick

    E39 sunroof swap glass to metal ?

    The E28 has a number of bespoke parts that are unique for the metal / glass roof so I would expect the E39 to be no different. There is a good "how to" guide for this for the E28 online, so there could well be one for the E39 too. Regards, Mick

    New Addition to the Family

    Hi CB, Is that Gary Francis's M535? If it is, then really happy that such a nice example has gone to such a good family home Why not keep the Little Donkey? Personally, I can't see any problems with owning three E28's... Best regards, Mick (3 Eta's)

    E28 OBC Turn Indicator Stalk

    It's not the size that matters but what you put in it... Currently a couple of dozen boxes of E28 parts / upgrades for the RHD Eta flotilla. Basements are bigger than lofts Regards, Mick

    Hi Shaun, Sorry to hear of your unfortunate news, but as others have said you now have your E28 back and it has not been parted out or exported. Good that your windows are all intact along with the moonroof. Moonroofs are becoming increasingly harder to find / replace. The outcome could have been so much worse. It's good to hear that this experience has not tainted this car, especially after all the work, time and money you have invested into it. Hopefully you will be able to source the replacement parts that you need to repair all the damage. Best of luck regards, Mick

    E28 OBC Turn Indicator Stalk

    Hi Shaun, I'm sure I changed out one of these on the Zobelbraun Eta a couple of years back, so I should have the original kicking around in the basement. The Zobelbraun Eta had an OBC from new so came equiped with the remote control function on the indicator stalk. Give me a few days to look for it and I will get back to you. Regards, Mick

    E28 Cassette storage wanted.

    Ivo has one up for sale: https://www.e28.nl/en/product/bmw-e28-cassette-box-65141373380/ Not sure if the cassette holders are "handed" for LHD or RHD, in order to accommodate the curved driver centric design philosophy of the time. Suspect that they most likely are on reflection. Regards, Mick
